We have streamlined our forensics process to make it easy to understand how things will take place in an investigation. Of course, not all investigations are equal, but almost all follow a similar process.
Step 1: Engagement
Before an investigation begins we will meet to discuss the objectives of the case. Based on this meeting we will put together a detailed statement of work showing what will be performed as well as showing deliverables and costs.
Step 2: Preservation
Regardless of the number and type of devices involved in the case, the next step is to preserve the evidence and start a chain of custody. We will make verified forensic copies of all evidence and track the movement to and in our lab to preserve the data exactly as it is on the original devices.
Step 3: Investigation
After the data is preserved, we can begin our investigation. This is where the majority of the work is happening. Our experts will analyze the data, taking detailed notes, and building a story from the data.
Step 4: Reporting
Once the investigation is complete, we put together a very detailed, but easy to digest report, on our findings. Our reports are second to none in the industry. They are very clear, detailed and easy to understand for even the least tech-savvy person.
Step 5: Testimony
If needed, our experts can then testify in court or in depositions on our findings in the case.
